Field of Flowers quilt is done RSC16

Before Christmas I also finished quilting this triangle in a square quilt that was part of the RSC16 challenge and I used my 3” Triangle in a square accuquilt die and made 4 blocks to a bigger 6” block and then 6 of each color choice, then added a mustard yellow sashing and matching corner stones and a wider border- here I had just enough of a this grape vine fabric that actually went well with the colors- but wasn’t one of my favorite fabrics, but it was great to use here

It measures 55 x 70”


I quilted curves on the blocks and bubbles/pebbles on the sashing


The backing is totally scrappy from the ugliest fabrics I could find or at least ones I wanted to get rid of and use up or just simply tired of looking at them and didn’t have THAT much left over of each one.


I named the quilt “Field of flowers” and embroidered a butterfly and flower motif on it, that I had gotten for free and I just flipped it and moved another one to the opposite side- all this in the new embrilliance essentials program!


Glad it’s done and I’m sure I’ll donate it at some point.

Great charity quilt, Bea. I never thought of using my triangle die like that. Love how you got rid of "ugly" fabrics. That's the way I do it too. Nicely done.

I'm sure someone will cherish it and I'm betting you are happy to have used up all those scraps.

What a darling quilt! Your color choices really pop, and the pattern that emerges via color placement in the blocks is really appealing. Good on you!

Great job on the finish. That is a really neat block.

Those Triangle in a Square blocks made a really cute quilt. I recently learned how to piece those blocks and may give your quilt a try. You certainly emptied out your "remnant" bin on the back of this one. Nice work!!

It is so fun that you used up everything on the back. Just so much happiness there. Best of all, it isn't in the stash anymore.

That scrappy back brought a smile to my face. LOVE that you used those chunks to finish off your quilt!!
